Salem Creek Bridge Drama

This is how far the water came up when Salem Creek flooded after the torrential downpour burst the beaver dam upstream. This is a photoshopped image based on where the flood lines appeared in the lawn,( we had no camera at the time the flooding occurred)

Blue lines show where the wall and part of the abutment washed out.

I repaired the damaged section the next day laying the stones vertically to give the wall along the bank more of a dynamic grip.
